CRONIGON 2 is a two-component mixture comprising 97.5% argon and 2.5% carbon dioxide. Its lower oxidation potential reduces the need for aggressive chemical cleaning agents. This lowers manufacturing costs and shortens production processes.
This mixture is used for MAG welding across a wide variety of stainless steel alloys. It can be used in all transfer modes. The ideal operating range is between 1 and 8mm, although it can be used successfully outside this band.
Benefits at a Glance
Low spatter for reduced post-weld cleaning and wire consumption
Lower surface oxidation
Enhanced surface quality – similar to that obtainable with helium mixtures
Reduced clean-up time with the option of less aggressive cleaning methods
Easier to use than argon and oxygen mixtures, resulting in few operator-related defects
Lower cost relative to helium mixtures.
